Feature and Follow - First Time Again

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

I'm going to cheat.

A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson because they were my very bestest favorites when I was tiny.

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norman Juster because the riddles and twists of absurdity are great every time - in context and out.

And...

Flashman by George Macdonald Fraser for the adult version of absurd humor in a story with riddles and plot twists and plenty of fun.

What do you think?

    1. Did you read The Search for Delicious by Natalie Babbitt? Kind of a cross between the Phantom Tollbooth and the Princess Bride. I think it was a Newbery too.

    2. I haven't. I'm with Kristen - my TBR has doubled as well, lol. :)

    3. The advantage of Babbitt is that it reads really quickly. On the TBR and then almost as quickly off!

  2. I feel like I'm missing out on so many great books after this FF! My TBR list has doubled with all of these new additions, including all of these!

    1. Thank you. Yes, a growing TBR pile is a hazard of reading too much!
